I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

For the first time since late May I attempted to use laptop camera to be greeted with the message "Windows can't find or start the camera". On going to device manager I found no reference to 'Imaging devices' nor were there any entries other than audio under 'Sound, video and game controllers'.
 
Next I downloaded and installed driver sws5101af.exe from the Lenovo support site. The "Windows can't find or start the camera" message appeared yet again, and nothing changed in device manager!  Any suggestions what I should try next?

Got a new Canon camera which uses its own program to download pictures to the computer (Gateway MX6930) running XP (sp3) and have had no problems. Tried to download some pics from my older Sony camera which used to bring up the Camera Wizard allowing me to title each shot with a name and number but that no longer happens. I plug in the Sony (USB cable) and nothing. It shows up on Explore and right clicking does not get me to the Scanner and Wizzard start-up screen that would allow me to select the photos I want and to name them as they are put on the hard drive. When I search through Scanners & Cameras and click on "Add an imaging device" the "Scanner & Camera Installation Wizzard" starts but Sony is not listed so I cannot select it. I can click on "Have Disk" but the CD that came with the Sony does not have the file it needs. The only thing on the CD (besides photo programs) is a USB driver which I did download but didn't help...... HOWEVER I have had MS Word refuse to start a week or so ago and I tried reinstalling but didn't work, I found an MS site that showed me how to repair the Word registry and that worked OK. This makes me suspect - maybe something has happened to the registry. I can't go there so I decided to ask for your help.... Any suggestions? Thanks in advance...
 

A:Cannot find MS Scanner & Camera Wizard to download photos from camera

Either camera should show up in "My Computer" when connected via USB ...
Where you can explore the files and copy>paste (drag>drop) them to a folder in your computer.
Can you get your pics this way ????

Okay.

I have an Olympus X-760 camera, and the software that came with it is Olympus Master Version 1.4. I've had to reinstall Olympus Master because my main computer died.

My main computer has been stupid recently, so I decided to install Olympus Master onto my laptop (which has Windows Vista). The installation went fine, so I plugged in my camera, clicked 'PC' on the camera's screen and went to 'Transfer Images' on Olympus Master. I ended up with the following message:

"The software is unable to find an Olympus digital camera connected to a USB port on your computer,"

...So, I've tried every USB port on my laptop and I've even unplugged and plugged back in the part of the cable that plugs into the camera itself but I keep getting that message. My laptop itself realises something's been plugged in, as it brings up 'Autoplay' - I've clicked on 'Open folder to view files' and it has all my pictures in that folder apart from the photos I've taken at an event this weekend. ...And because it's those photos I want this whole thing is making me incredibily annoyed. The photos themselves can be viewed perfectly fine on the camera itself.

Hello, I've had this lenovo yoga 710 for only a few months now and on multiple occasions, I've gone to open my camera/skype call, and I get a black screen, that says, "We Can't Find Your Camera". Now, I've read about a million posts about solutions to similar problems, but can't seem to get anything to work.When I go into "Device Manager", there are no camera drivers under "Imaging Devices" or "Sound, Video, and Game Controllers". So I looked it up, and everything I read says to go to the lenovo website, find the right camera driver for my specific computer, and download it. Well, I've tried that with a bunch of different camera drivers including the "AzureWave, Bison, Chicony, Liteon" one that is supposedly the right one for this computer, and after hitting "install" and "finish", I get a pop-up "error" message that simply says, "No device found". I've uninstalled and reinstalled lenovo "easycam", but it says the same thing -- "Can't find device", etc.Any suggestions would be awesome, I've only had this laptop for a few months and this has happened at least 4 or 5 times now and it's really becoming quite the aggravation when trying to video chat with family from college.Thanks in advance!

Hi All,

I have a Dell laptop running Windows 8.1 and my camera app recently stopped working. When I open the app a message comes up saying




We can?t get to the camera roll right now
Something went wrong while accessing the camera roll.



I assume that the default save location for photos and videos is my pictures library but there is definitely a folder there called ?Camera Roll? so what is the problem? Also, is there any way that I can get the photos to save to SkyDrive?

Any help would be appreciated
Thanks,

Hi William.

William. try this.

This will at least show your folder "Camera Roll" in the Metro Pictures library (I hope enable them to be saved in cloud)
After that I don't know (re your application) Is there an options/settings in the app that you can specify where the folder is?

Hi ITWorxLA,
 
Welcome to the Community Forums.
 
As per system overview :
IO port: Memory card slot (SD/SDHC/SDXC/MMC)
 
Platform specification:
One microSD Card slot, supports up to 2TB
 
Usually there would be stickers on the box or laptop to indicate the format it also supports.
You can try to find/borrow  a spare 32GB SDXC to test first before purchase.

The problem happens in both windows store apps and .exe programs. Camera doesn't work in Chrome, Edge,Skype(both store and .exe). I recently gave my laptop in for servicing at an authorized service center(Just a speaker issue). Could it be that they could have unplugged the camera cable? I also saw a post referring to the same laptop but in that post only store apps had this problem. Already tried reinstalling driver, enabling permissions etc. If I remember correctly this problem started after the fall creators update. When the camera is used the white led does blink, even though an image doesn't show.

(Edit - Subject should read 'Microsoft Camera Wizard does not work anymore with Canon digital camera')

I have a Canon SD 700 IS digital camera bought about 15 months ago. Until recently, I could connect it to the USB port (same one each time and that port is not used for anything else) of my Windows XP PC (1 year old, bought new) and the Microsoft Scanner and Camera Wizard would appear allowing me to use that software to transfer my digital pictures to my PC. Now, that does not work. I tried reinstalling the Canon EOS utility that came on a CD with my camera - no success in getting pictures transferred with that. The only way I can get the pictures to transfer, is to open Windows Explorer, the camera shows up under My Computer, but if I right click on Get pictures highlighting the camera listing, after multiple trys and 30 minutes, I get the few dozen pictures to transfer.

Anyone know what to try? I am suspecting it has to do with a recent overhall of my PC anti-spyware and security software (details below) as was using Lavasoft and Spybot before and found them becoming less effective. My computer is anti-malware free as far as I know from anti-spyware scans with multiple products (at least twice weekly) and real-time protection and anti-virus scans a little less frequently which Zone Alarm has never from day one found any viruses.

The computer is recognizing the camera in the USB port (it is enabled) and camera powered on and has no issues when taking pictures.... Read more

Hi, I'm having trouble with my digital camera software and/or transferring pictures from my camera and dock to pc. I have a Kodak cx7525 digital camera.

I have searched for the dll file but cannot find it and have no idea what it is or what it does. I'm guessing something is missing from the pc instead of the camera software.

I have a digital camera with Window's XP. Originally, when I turned the camera on, it would launch a wizard to transfer the files.

Lately (maybe since I installed SP1), it doesn't recognize the camera as picture files, but as a removable drive. I have changed this setting in the drive properties, but the setting won't stay so something must be overriding it.

I've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the camera, but the same thing happens.

A new program called "safely remove hardware" might possibly be involved, but I can't find any settings there to change that might impact this. I'm not sure where this came from unless it was part of SP1.

Any help out there?
